Breach Candy Swimming Club is an exclusive club with a large swimming pool in Breach Candy, Mumbai. It was, inevitably, a whites-only institution in British times though British children born in India who were members of the club were unaware of its exclusive nature; it was no different in exclusivity from them being excluded from the Hindu beach, for example. I am writing this remembering my times at the club when I was growing up in Bombay - as well as reminiscing about the many Indian friends I had with whom I used to go to school and play with when not at the club. It continued to exclude Indians till the 1960s[1]
